What is Colleges Week?
Colleges Week is part of the ‘Love Our Colleges’ campaign. The week will see colleges across the country, including Bath College, along with education unions and students, hosting and getting involved in events to showcase the wonderful things they do and raise awareness of the funding challenges that colleges face. The week is focused around a national lobby of Parliament on Wednesday 17 October.
The ‘Love Our Colleges’ campaign is a partnership between Association of Colleges (AoC), National Union of Students (NUS), UNISON, Association of College and School Leaders (ASCL), University and Colleges Union (UCU), GMB, TUC and National Education Union (NEU).
When does it take place?
Colleges Week runs from Monday 15 October to Friday 19 October 2018.
Why is it happening?
Alongside the ‘Love Our Colleges’ campaign, Colleges Week aims to raise the profile of the FE sector and the 2.2 million people it educates and trains each year. Ultimately, it hopes to get better funding for the FE sector.
